'This play is important for several reason. It has intrinsic merit.....It indicates that early in the colonial period the Australian theatre had its roots in Australian soil.The circumstances of its composition show that the life of the imperial convict was not one of unrelieved brutality. And finally, research into Tucker's sources has revealed a record of lively dramatic activity in Maitland between 1843 and 1845.' From the Introduction.
